But now tliey are highlighted by Ihe uncertainly of the future, highlighted to siieli an extent thai they will never be forgotten. And because of that, ordinary unman beings are given a chance lo see life with a Jillle of the philosopher's appreciation, with a bll Of the artist's awareness. Our sorrows and worries are sharpened, too, of course—but so is our enjoyment and appreciation, which helps a little to balance the scales. ROXY Miltnm Sat. & gun.
